Tennessee enacted a law severely curtailing the ability of civic organizations to conduct voter registration activities. CLC serves as counsel in a case challenging the constitutionality of the law.
On June 21, 2019, CLC, along with its co-counsel in League of Women Voters of Tennessee v. Hargett, filed an amended complaint against Tennessee challenging the state’s new voter registration law, known as House Bill 1079-Senate Bill 971.
